Entre Artistes | Scrapbooker of the year Part 1 of 4

Hi everyone!

Today I have something old(er) to share with you. I couldn't share it before because of publication rights but now I am free to do so. :)

First, let me back up a little.
Last year, I participated in a contest held by The Great Celine Navarro and Karine Cazenave. Together they are Entre Artistes. It's a very well known company in France. The contest was called

"Scrapbooker of the year 2013"

And there where given assignments that we had to submit. There was a mini album, a home decor project and 3 layouts with given constraints.

No, I didn't win, but I finished second. It was a very proud moment for me. :)

Part of my creations were published in the Entre Artiste's magazine. One page was published here, on my blog.
And starting today, I'd like to show you what I have sent for submission.

One of the assignments was to make a layout using only navy blue, pale yellow, pale pink and aqua.
Here's my layout using some very very old Stampin'UP! patterned paper because I didn't have any of the brand new stuff in my stash at that moment. Since then, I carry some navy blue papers. ;)

It's fun (even for me) to reminisce pages I made over a year ago. :) With all the sewing, the embroidery (Amy Tangerine hadn't launched her templates yet, or at least I wasn't aware of it), the layering of small elements, the ink droplets and sequins. It makes for a fun page to look at. :)

I'll show you the other projects in the upcoming days and weeks. Stay tuned. :)

What a beautiful page and gorgeous daughter. When I first read your description of the colours you had to use I wasn't sure - but you made them work so well. Love all the stitching

Thank you! Funny enough, me too I wasn't too sure about those colors until I started working with them and then it all fell into place. :) thanks for your comments!! Love them! :)

You're very welcome! I'm so happy to have discovered you through PRT. I can't believe I haven't been to your blog before!
